Hi, everyone. May is coming, do you want to travel? Do you want to learn Chinese while travelling? Today Miracle Mandarin will introduce you a city with a long history——Wuhan. Let’s go~
Wuhan, composed of the three towns of Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang, is the capital of Hubei Province. The three towns, separated by the Changjiang and Hanshui rivers, are linked by bridges, and because these municipalities are so closely connected by waterways, Wuhan is also called the “city on rivers.” Been regarded as A Thoroughfare to Nine Provinces, Wuhan is one of China‘s most important hubs of water and rail transportation and communications.
Let me introduce you several historic sites:
Yellow Crane Tower（黄鹤楼Huánɡhèlóu）
Bordering on the Changjiang River and crouching on the top of the Snake Hill, the Yellow Crane Tower is one of the three most famous towers on the south bank of the Changjiang River. (the other two are Yueyang Tower in Hunan and Tengwang Tower in Jiangxi) First built in 223 AD, the tower has a history of over 1700 years. It is not only an important scenic spot, but also a symbol of “piping times of peace” in people’s minds.
Scholars in the past dynasties wrote hundreds of poems and scores of writings in praise of the magnificent Yellow Crane Tower. The legend about the tower has become a bright pearl of the Chinese literature. Rebuilt in 1985, the Yellow Crane Tower Park occupies a hilly area and consists of towers, pavilions and corridors, forming an architecture complex and a garden complex of man-made and natural scenery. It has become the symbol of Wuhan for its long history, its magnificent outlook and its imposing architectural style. Do you want to see it? Come with Miracle Mandarin.
The East Lake is the pride and joy of the people of Wuhan. Millions of residents here get a lot of fun out of going for a walk along the lakeside in spring, swimming in summer, appreciating sweet laurel in autumn and admiring plum in winter. The lake covers 33 square kilometers and stretches far into the distance. Ancient pagodas and temples scattered in 34 verdant hills around the lake make the scenic spot more historic and imposing.
